How We started?

In 1986, Earle Glidden Jr. started the company right of high school, with a pick-up truck, a loader backhoe, one dump truck, and five employees. The company’s focus at that time was residential foundations, driveways, snow plowing, and small paving repairs.

Thru the late 90’s and early 2000’s, the company continued to add field employees, estimators, a construction manager, and several additional pieces of construction and paving equipment. Growth continued in the commercial and municipal construction side of the business including water, sewer, and drain installation, as well as full time residential and small commercial paving.
